So briefly let’s jump into this.
Picture it! Late summer 2016. So I’m applying to medical school last year as planned and then I get an email from the Princeton Review. The email was talking about Naturopathic medicine, an alternative to traditional medical school. So I kept reading not thinking much of it. As far as I was concerned I already had my plans and my mind made up. I was going to one of the 7 schools I had just applied to and I was going to be a Cardio God!
Needless to say, what I read about naturopathy interested me and I decided to dig deeper. I decided to apply to Bastyr University in August.
By October I had an invitation for an interview. I was set to go in November. I flew out on my birthday, toured the campus, spoke to students, interviewed, the whole shabang! I really felt like I was at home.
It was about a week or so later when I got a phone call from the admissions office. I was accepted! And offered a small scholarship! It was honestly the best news I could have gotten! It didn’t matter to me if I hadn’t heard from the other schools yet this was my true destiny.
So now it’s May and in less than 2 months I will be beginning my medical school journey. Set to become a brilliant ND.
